Intensive Inpatient Program

Programs: Intensive Inpatient Program

28_day_intensiveOur Intensive Inpatient Program is for men and women age 18 and over who have alcohol and/or drug abuse problems. Harris House provides individual treatment plans for each client that typically include individual counseling plus two group meetings every morning and three group sessions every afternoon and evening.


Group sessions can be either educational or process-oriented. Educational groups cover the physiological damage of addiction to the body, disease theory, Alcoholics Anonymous steps, trigger identification, and relapse avoidance. Topics of the process group sessions include how to deal with feelings in a healthy way, family dynamics and reunification basics, anger management, stress management, spirituality, and how to have sober fun.


Weekly counseling sessions involve both the family and the client in the alcohol and substance abuse treatment plan. Although clients are busy with program activities all day every day, the schedule is relaxed a bit on Sundays, and clients are able to have some free time.


The Harris House inpatient treatment program is in a state-of-the-art facility in a safe and secure fenced urban area. Clients have semi-private rooms. Detox programs are conducted at Harris House. Airport pickup provided to clients from outside St. Louis. Graduates of our program are encouraged to continue in our Intensive Outpatient Program as needed and weekly aftercare groups for a year after treatment.
